This year the 48 EcoFilm Challenge gave filmmakers the oppotunity to leave their mark in the world in a unique competition that took place on July 6-8, 2012. The winning film by Oh My Creative won $5,000 in cash and a place in the Cannes film festival Short Film Corner. In total over $12,000 in cash was awarded at the Awards ceremony on Friday July 27, 2012.
Filmmakers had to make a film that addresses “Greening Your Ride” and how the world’s supply of oil is becoming more scarce and more expensive and what people are doing about it. Of course, they also had to make this film in 48 hours using a provided character, prop and line of dialogue.
